If I say that I cooked something on the spur of the moment ,then it has to be this easy Besan Toast recipe!

This week I have chosen ‘Get a toast ready for dinner‘ as the theme for Blogging Marathon #76,Week 1. After yesterdays sweet Banana peanut butter toast, I wanted a savory toast.

It is quite simple to prepare and was enjoyed by the kids with tomato sauce.When dishes are accepted by the kids then I can assure you that it is a hit recipe!

Besan also known as Chickpea flour / Kadalaimavu  is the coating for the bread and I cooked it on a cast iron griddle.

It was only after I clicked the pictures , I realized, grated carrot, finely chopped capsicum could have been added to the recipe!Since this was a hit with the kids, I might make this again with a few additions.

Note:

  • You can add finely chopped capsicum , grated carrot to the batter.
  • If you prefer soft toast,cook on low flame till the raw smell of besan disappears and then remove from griddle.
  • Ajwain / bishops weed can be used instead of cumin seeds
  • Adjust chili powder to taste
  • Finely chopped green chilies can be used instead of chili powder. Since I was serving this to the kids I did not want them to bite into the chilies so used red chili powder.
